Elsewhere:

     Necroma scrubbed her hands over her face.  Her hands were shaking, and there
were tears on her face.  She was not surprised.  "I never imagined anything like
that," she said.  "None of my teachers mentioned such creatures, either.  How can
that be?  They were good teachers."
     "Few return alive to tell of the spirit-wolves," Young Joan said.
     "If I'd been alone, I wouldn't have survived them," Necroma answered.
     Joan shrugged.  "Bad briefing.  It happens.  Do we continue to try following the
man with the cloak of souls?"
     "Can we still follow him?" Cloudrider asked.  "I mean, is there still any kind
of trail?"
     Both were silent for several minutes, consulting their ghosts, Necroma guessed.
She extended her own senses as she'd been taught, seeking, well, anything at all.
She didn't really know what she might find or feel.  Nothing.  How could there be
nothing?  That man was out there, and probably other things like the spirit-wolves
that no one had told her about.  She "looked" harder.  There must be something out
there.

Near Zuwayza:

     "Guarantees!  A mortal dares speak to us of--"
     "Of course I do.  Don't take us all for fools," Wolf said.  "This now is not the
world you knew, and we will not have it returned to the old ways.  You know that
going back on the tracks of time is," he hesitated, "unwise."
     "We do know it," the Dark Hunter admitted.  Agro thought he sounded reluctant
and willing to try what going backward would do.  "But I cannot give you the
guarantees you seek, I speak only for myself and many of my fellows are eager to be
free in the world--"
     "You are the Huntsman," Wolf countered.  "Your word can bind or unbind the
others, save only such renegades as may appear, and those you are bound to seek out
for their denial of your authority.  Is this not true?"
     A moment of silence.  "You are well taught," the Dark Hunter said grudgingly.
"Yes, this is true.  But... we may have reasons not to move too quickly to bring the
renegades to heel."
     "We could talk back and forth on this till the sun rises," Wolf said.  "You know
what I want, I know what you want.  Let us agree to act in good faith--"
     "Or what?  You have a pledge from the Great Ones, yes, but They are not here.
How will you express your displeasure, if things do not go as you think they should?"
     "I will not express my displeasure to you directly," the old shaman answered.
Agro wondered how he could sound so calm in the face of barely veiled threats.  "I
will express it to Lord Malcorn and let HIM explain your errors to you."
     The longest silence so far.  What was this creature thinking?  What could it do,
what could they do in return if they had to fight their way out?  Agro didn't do
anything obvious like turning to examine the shadows around the little plaza, but so
far as he could without moving, he examined those shadows closely.
     "Oh."  Another pause.  The voice sounded... depressed?  Resigned?  "There is no
need to bestir him.  We will remember your wishes in this.  It is possible that there
will be incidents," the Hunter went on, "you must know that some are inevitable, but
not... many incidents."
     "Good.  Let us begin, then."
     Finally!  Agro straightened, ready to hear a clear plan and immediate orders.
Maybe not *expecting* to hear those things, but ready for them.
     "There will be many battles on many fields," the Hunter said, "but the war
against this Darkness will be won in Kurukar."  The voice took on a sneer.  "The
Karnhorns call it 'beautiful beach' or some such.  How little they know!  We who have
been in this land longer call it the Land of the Black Door.  It has always been a
dangerous place, and only a mortal of strong character could resist it--as this Black
Kaliv is clearly not resisting.  That door must be shut.  Many will resist efforts to
shut it, of course--the Kaliv who opened it, and those who came through.  But it must
be closed, and that by mortal hands."
     "Mortal hands will be found for the task," Wolf said.
     "I believe you.  That is good, as we cannot touch the Black Door--it would
unmake us.  But we can fight those who have issued froth from it, and those who guard
it.  And we can guide you to places of... let us call them 'secondary infections'
which you must also fight."
     "And help with those secondary centers, I have no doubt," Wolf said.  "For
now... you can take on mortal flesh, I know.  Not easily, perhaps, but you can.  Do
so, and come with us as an ally to a place where we may make our plans."
     "You ask a lot."
     "How else to find the limits of what can be gotten?"
     A pause.  "Very well.  Go to the Tavern of the Black Axe in Malcorn and I will
meet you there.  The Lord Malcorn also, he may as well be informed from the
beginning, else he will suspect the worst."
     Wolf bowed.  "It shall be so."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for LAPUR.  Too bad, STREET WALKERS, but 
CARDOW HUNTERS was just too good to be stopped.  Uncool, FORCE OF NATURE.  I mean 
2-3-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  MID EARTH like really fought hard to move up to 2nd from 6th.  Way to go!  
One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 4 after going 4-1-0.  Keep it 
up, WILL DUEL 4 MEAD!  MVP award for CLOUDSHADOW?  CARDOW HUNTERS' proud of her after 
beating GUAT and getting 21 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  AEREON got 
smashed by SONNY DAZE, and lost 17 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the 
most popular gal in all LAPUR.  She got the most challenges.  (But what about 
proposals?) Like, KYRA must be pretty gutsy!  She challenged the Duelmaster from 
STREET WALKERS.  Does this gal have a death wish or what!  And I was just getting 
used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome KYRA.  Aren't BLOOD 
KNIGHTS proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his 
teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of STREET WALKERS 
must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something 
that I don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why METAL MINCERS' been avoiding STREET 
WALKERS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  People were asking me did 
CHROME CRIMPER REALLY challenge AMIE?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded 
good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but AMIE wants me to write about 
it since she was bested by CHROME CRIMPER.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What a bummer deal for VALONOS!  He just barely was getting his "fighter 
feet" but got kill by FHRAIN of MID EARTH!  Those're the breaks, I guess.  URD 
bloodfeuded (is that a word?) A.A. SHOCK for revenge over some guy's bad fortune.  
Was it really worth it?  RAGNAR really fought hard against BLACK TORCH.  That'll 
teach FORCE OF NATURE not to go and kill any of FAUX TIDES II's guys again, huh!  
Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (FHRAIN vs. VALONOS, that is.) Hey you guys, 
don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone 
write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Brickhouse -- Congrats!  Does that mean you didn't want to hear it eight times?
(chuckle) -- Ora

Amie -- What was that?  You were supposed to enjoy a peening?  Huh? -- Platinum
Peener

Aeron -- Some days you get the blood; some days the blood gets you. -- Chrome Crimper

Basaido -- What Crimper said, but I would rather it had been me that got the blood.
Know what I mean?  Salute.  Well done and well fought. -- Copper Compacter

Yo, Mincers!  Git a move on!  Ye gotta win.  Aye! -- Oremaster

Oremaster -- Well, well.  You're here.  It's your turn to take out the trash.  Now,
hustle along, Dear. -- Ora

Sporkis -- Cold toast, you do understand.  I'm glad you're going to be the manager we
all know and loathe, there's no place on the sands for handicapping your emotions...
and nice guys can get taken advantage of.  In fact, rage-over-being-taken-advantage-
of can put a real positive spin to your gameday speeches and strategies. -- Scion

Rewrite -- Yer a bit of a good fellow fer takin care a da biz.  Bloodfeuds should
always be avenged if possible.  It's good for team morale, and it doesn't look too
bad on your resume either, if you know what I mean.  Fer instance, when Sheila G's a
tellin you to "stand-forth"...and other such like times. -- Bonzo

Cloudshadow -- I'm being followed by a Cloudshadow...Cloudshadow, Cloudshadow. --
Boggy

Mossman -- You're obstructin...keeping me from my pointed appointment with Destiny.
Actually the name we're looking for here is "Brickhouse."  Ring a bell?  Turn a
stomach?  Ha! -- Turtle

Gavin the Optimistic -- With spirit like that you should fit right in.  See, it's
good fights, not winning that's the goal.  In fact, if your fighters lose all their
fights to my fighters, but give a give accounting of themselves, well...that's what
the audience is here for and you should feel good about yourself.  <grin>...ah heck,
who am I kidding, come on in the water's fine, Thrash and Wail. -- Scion, mgr.
Escapade
P.S.  Thrash and Burn was too easy.

Lucy -- I always bite lizards on the tail.  It's funny when the tail comes off, see?
I laugh a lot when that happens. -- Mad Dog
P.S.  Get a different weapon, you're unsuited to that one.

Occy -- Ah, people talk largely about salamanders and the like, but most lizards just
can't take fire. -- Firewalker

Boggy -- Foolish! -- Cloudshadow

Sonny Daze -- Beats a leaking roof! -- Red Bull

Ausonius -- Damn, and I was planning to make the killing of houseplants my day job!
-- Horn Rock

Sporkis -- Good write-up on Rewrite.  Would you consider submitting it for a
spotlight on Noblish Island? -- Jorja

Amatsurata -- (blushes and bows) -- Cloudshadow

Urd -- You're a wi$%# too. -- Aronwe

Brickhouse -- Ummm, I said on my terms.  Your challenge means your terms still.
Don't look for me to challenge till Aronwe gets another shot at you. -- Urat

Callisto -- I have a feeling that you won't be so easy to beat in another half dozen
or so fights. -- Hulik

All -- Myrrh was a 9-12-11-15(+2)-17-5-17 PL, he was a brave and honorable member of
the guild, but winning and not learning are a combination for disaster. -- Dirmael
Mid Earth Guild Leader

Josie Wails -- The gods are cruel.  Please forgive me. -- Fhrain

Mad Dog -- I doubt I smell any better now. -- Ghost of Myrrh

Mad Dog Montana -- Stay outta my way! -- Aronwe

Celadus -- You are a quick little fella. -- Urat

Dax -- Trying to crack my skull open, huh? -- Hulik

Daisy Chains -- Please take care of that insurance policy before trying that again. -
- Fhrain

Dax -- I hope Urat gets a crack at you real soon. -- Aronwe

Urd -- You should have a chat with your smithy.  <grin> -- Urat

Guat -- What are you, a stone statue? -- Hulik

Mad Dog Montana -- I kinda figured you would be next.  Well fought. -- Fhrain

All -- The curse strikes again.  G'asshir 7-9-11-17-10-13-17 AB. -- Dirmael

Valonos -- I hope you are satisfied.  I am certainly not. -- Ghost of G'asshir

Gavin Rule -- Send me an email (if you can) to visionist37 at hotmail dot com.  I
will respond by diplo next turn if I don't get an email from you. -- Visionist

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
